I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to reduced immunity as well as high glucose levels provide a favourable environment for the organisms to survive and multiply..
Therefore the main culprit of recurring yeast infection in your case seems to be Diabetes..
So in order to get rid of recurring yeast infections, you should consult a Diabetologist and get a proper evaluation done and investigations like fasting and post meals blood sugar levels, glycosylated Hemoglobin levels should be done..
You can be give appropriate doses of oral hypoglycemic drugs along with daily intake of Insulin if needed to maintain normal blood sugar levels..
Once the diabetes will come under control the frequency of infections will automatically decrease..
You should also curb sown intake of refined sugars and carbohydrates..
Take more of green leafy vegetables..
Drink plenty of water and do moderate workout like walk for 30 to 45 minutes..
Avoid stress as it can also cause rise in blood sugar levels..
In case if you get yeast infection oral and topical antifungal medications can only help along with taking Probiotics like Yoghurt and garlic..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
